Downtown Development

The Downtown Development office facilitates business recruitment, infrastructure development, creates promotions, plans and implements events, supports preservation activities, and distributes downtown information.

Our vibrant downtown features specialty shops, eclectic dining, bars and bistros, and year-round events. We have "big city" amenities while surrounded by small-town service and charm.

Downtown Mt. Pleasant is bordered by the picturesque Chippewa River. Two of Mt. Pleasant's most scenic parks, Island Park and Nelson Park, are also located downtown offering visitors a local trail system for walking or cycling.

Located just a few blocks north of Central Michigan University's campus and miles directly west of the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort, downtown Mt. Pleasant has all you are looking for and more.
